I had already bought a barrel and tree for our new arrival, then we were having an extra kitten and decided we needed one more tree. So glad I bought this one, they all love it, especially mommy cat Audrey, she loves getting on the top shelf and checking on her babies, even the babies have had a go on the top. Also a nice little hidy hole box where they can have a snooze, I have to say bought a few items from Zooplus, and all of them have been excellent quality and a decent price.
Excellent climbing tower, they enjoy playing, resting, and relaxing
My two little cats both enjoy their tower, I have positioned it next to my computer, they enjoy sitting next to me while I work - without sitting on paperwork or keyboards - and they can also look out of the window and check on the weather before venturing out. The plush base has started to come away, so I'll replace it with a carpet remnent and carpet adhesive, hence only 4 stars, but they enjoy it, and it looks nice to, and is stable.
This is the second one of these I have had, the last was used for some 15 years and weathered against claws etc extremely well. We have 4 cats and they all love this product. One cat is a. England and because of the height she loves it. Also great value and quality
I bought this for my two kittens in October 2010. They loved it from Day 1 and have used it daily every since (Beany is asleep on the top platfrom now). Even now, more than 6 years on, it's still in pretty good condition. Cons? The side platform really needs two screws to secure it, and I would prefer a larger base because I can't stand it against, nor attach it to, a wall. Those two minor points aside, I can't fault it and, more importantly, neither can my cats.
Bigger than expected, it's nearly as tall as me! Of course this is great for my cats, Penny and Maggie, as they can now watch over much more of their territory. Plenty of area to scratch, lots of places to sit and sleep, my kitties are so happy with their new cat tree. They have hidden their Moppi Sheep & Hedgehog toys inside the hidey-hole-box and like to fish them out and spin them round the scratching posts. I would highly recommend this cat tree for both cats and kittens. Excellent value, too. Cat trees of the same quality go for £100 to £200 at Pets at Home, plus with this there's free shipping! Lots of love from Penny and Maggie, the two kitty cats.
I already have this tree in cream, as i am having a new cat soon i purchased a new one. I have had my tree for over 13 months and it is still in excellent condition. This tree is strong and sturdy and a great design.
I've only just built this up, but already my 9 month old cat has been playing on it - even when I was building it.
I nearly dropped a star because there was a part missing, but when I contacted Customer Services, they gave me a £35 refund and I found the part I needed in another store! The lady on the phone was wonderful and very helpful and I like the fact that I only paid about £4 for it - taking into account my £35 refund!
Definitely using Zooplus again...and I know that if I do have a problem, I can contact and sort it out as quickly as possible.
My cats love this cat tree, my little kitten likes to sleep in the box, I'm sure my big cat would to but he can't fit but he loves to sleep right at the very top, they both love the free toys too! Excellent customer service, my original package had something missing so they sent me out another tree & told me to keep the first for spare parts.
I have just ordered another one of these. The first one lasted about 8 years, and that's with 8 cats at some points.
The cats all love this tree. It was about time to replace the first one, which looked very beat, with sisal hanging from the post. It was still stable though, and survived two moves and that in my books represents great value for money.
Let's see if the new one can live up to the old one.
We've had many cats & plenty of scratch posts & trees over the years. Our two cats both love this, there's plenty of room for both of them & best of all it's lasted well. All I have to do is give it a quick vacuum over & it looks like new. Highly recommend this.
Quite Easy to put together, cat started using it straight away, loves to sleep on the top, the karlie toys that can be screwed in are a welcome addition. Could be improved a little with a hammock for example, easy to clean, looks good after 1 years use.
My cat is very large but loves the cat tree. It is a tight fit in the box but he likes to lay on the very top shelf.Only a SLIGHT WOBBLE !
I was impressed with the very rapid delivery and tracking was good
I bought this in beige and my two burmese kittens love it. They sleep in the box half way up and adore throttling the free dangly mice that came with it. They love chasing each other all over it ( and falling off ) and stretching up to scratch with their claws. It's attractive and stable and was a real bargain in the sale. Also, as they are red and chocolate tortie the colour sets them off beautifully ;)
I have only rated this 4 star as I have only just assembled it so cannot vouch for its longevity. I chose this based on other positive reviews that the product is sturdy and suitable for adult cats. I have a British Shorthair who is just over 6 months at present but wanted a product that would be suitable for her into adulthood as she is likely to grow quite big. She was immediately interested in the cat tree and start scratching straight away before I had even assembled the first part. Having just been spayed, her little cone head does not fit into the cubby hole just yet but once the Elizabethan collar is removed, I am sure she will enjoy playing hide and seek. Although I was aware of the product's measurements, I was still surprised by its size but pleased nonetheless - as an indoor cat, she will surely enjoy climbing up the levels. The product appears to be nice and sturdy. Assembly does take around 30-35 minutes, with the majority of time being spent interpreting the accompanying instructive diagram. I did this on my own and it was straightforward enough. The hardest part is probably figuring out the first step and which poles should be aligned to which holes as the diagram does not make entirely clear. Perhaps if they numbered the rods and the holes with sticky labels this would make the product even more user friendly. I am pleased with this product and once my kitten is fully recovered from her op, am sure she will have lots of fun on it.
